Long Island’s 14 hottest startup companies include everything from drug research firms working on potential treatments for breast cancer to makers of eco-friendly concrete, according to a report released Tuesday.
The companies were selected as part of a new report commissioned by Accelerate Long Island, a group that promotes high-tech company growth on the Island.
With six of the top 14 in the biotech industry, “we really have an opportunity . . . to become a notable biotech region,” said John Kominicki, author of the report and former publisher of Long Island Business News. “I think the companies on the list are reflective of what’s to come.”
